The Sox cashed in on some costly St. Louis errors, and hit nearly every good pitch to take a 1-0 lead with the 8-1 victory, yesterday. No need to refresh everyones mind, it is pretty fresh.
Which Cardinal(s) to watch out for: Michael Wacha
A young righty, with a very strong arm, who has everything working for him this postseason. Wacha has only surrendered 8 hits and 1 run in 21 innings this postseason.
Not many runners have reached base with that 0.571 WHIP, and those who have reached, have been stranded.
Makes Wainwright look like a pile of shit.
I'm not saying the Sox won't be able to hit Wacha, they will just have a tougher time tonight than last night.
Key to Sox victory: John Lackey repeating his last outing
